These stamps were issued in four stamp panels with perforations between the stamps so that they could be separated and put in an album. I know that SGC grades complete panels (there are several on eBay). Does anyone know whether SGC will grade/slab individual stamps? If so, will SGC assign a numerical grade or will it be an "A" designation?

Earl - do you know?

Thanks!

Hi Keith ~ I asked the graders and we do grade the individual stamps as well. Hope that helps! How's your Diamond Stars auto set coming along?

Thanks, Earl! I hope to have one to submit in the near future.

As for the signed Diamond Stars, it is slow going, but lots of fun. They don't show up very often, so I have to be patient.

Hi, this isn't anything to do with a specific, current card and it pertains to just my dilemma. I have purchased a 1933 Sport Kings #2 Babe Ruth Card. I haven't got it yet, but I might have 10 days to return it. The seller 'assumes' its a reprint but goes on describing how 'authentic' it is. I need to authenticate the card, and SBC is recommended. I already know it's POOR, it's butt-ugly. I just really wanted to own a real Babe Ruth Card. Here is my recent auction and would appreciate some advice. Thank you. CJ

Hi CJ, save yourself the money the card is a reprint, you need to return it asap. Word of advise any ebay item that the seller list as "I don't know if its fake", 99% it is fake but they are covering their butt from ebay rules by saying that. Good luck

SMtJoy, I don't think the seller is playing games. He stated he picked this card up at a swapmeet. His ebay impeccable record shows he is selling all prints when he sells cards. I have looked at prints and real ones online, and tend to think its real. Can you offer any technical reason why it might be a fake? Thanks, CJ

The color is wrong, the wear looks funny were it is exposed, etc. Also he is selling reprint T206 Wagners, 52 Mantles, the only card the seller has that is real is a new Kobe, lol. Look at past sales more reprints, I'm starting to think you are the seller but ill give you the benefit of not being but the card you purchased is fake.

Dont believe me then send it into any of the big 3 grading companies and waste some more money.

SMtJoy, I appreciate your opinion. Why do you think the color is wrong? I can see fading but not wrong color (yet). These type of cards can run even through to the other side. Hence, its why red can be mixed with green, etc. So far on the same card reprints online, I can see a big color difference, but not here. Usually reprints like the seller sells, are in very nice condition, which is typical for a way newer card. I do plan to send it to a grading company for sure, even if it is deemed real before I send it. CJ

How many different threads is this card going to be brought up??? If you think it's real, send it in for authentication! But quit asking about it over and over!
